It’s that time of year again! The Christmas tree for Friendship House donations is up in the New Castle office. Stop by anytime during normal business hours by December 17th and drop off a donation of gloves, hats, and scarves for either adults or children.
Event Date: Thursday, October 14th Arrive 3:30 to 4:00 pm
Rain Date, Tuesday, October 19th Arrive 3:30 to 4:00 pm
Staff from Hagley Museum and Delaware Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will work with youth who attend to plant the various plants in the garden. I would anticipate we would conclude by 6:00 pm or before. If a youth can only come for a portion of time, that is fine. This is a great volunteer activity for any youth and an educational one, also.
Please let us know if you’d like to attend by registering HERE.
Join Delaware 4-H as we pledge our hands to larger service all month long! There are a variety of ways for our 4-H clubs and families to say “thank you” to their communities.

Service Project Spotlights
We would also like to spotlight our members for their service activities. If you have recently completed or are working on a service project, please send a short paragraph about your project along with a photo of you in action to Jill Jackson, email@example.com. These spotlights will be featured on our Volunteering Page in the upcoming months!
